We have a local hawk that seems a very successful hunter. A while later all that was left was a pile of feathers.
Taken on the pavement at the front of our house.

Saw these two life size models at the castle.
Never been to Ludlow before. Stopped there on the way home. Nice place would recommend it.

Teepee and aurora.
I recently went to Abisko in Swedish Lapland on a photography trip hunting the Northern Lights.  To add to the adventure I travelled from Stockholm to Abisko by train, a 20 hour trip on the SJ night train!
